Tell us briefly about your modeling career and what has come out of it.
It was a chance of luck. My photos got put up on a website called Isanyoneup and was meant to be rude and hurtful and I ended up landing my first shoot which was paid and for publication. Since then I’ve just been pushing myself more and more and I’ve been on a huge rise for the past couple months. I can’t wait to see where it continues to go. I’m completely grateful for all the great people and opportunities I’ve gotten.
Tell us some of your greatest achievements in your career today.
Winning Miss PalmTrees and Tattoos 2014 and winning a spot as a Sullen Angel; opening a rap show for Too Short; gaining a spot as an H2ocean model; getting the chance to work with Phillip Reardon, Thomas Mathew, and Keith Selle so far.
What are some of the toughest challenges about your job and what are some things you do to overcome the challenges?
Definitely, when other people want to voice their negative opinions; it does get a little overwhelming. The multiple annoying creepy guys who constantly hit me up and bug me gets to me sometimes. Being judged because I’ve done nude photos before. I’ve noticed dating is a lot harder as well. A lot of guys aren’t secure enough to handle it as well as fit into my lifestyle.
What are some characteristics you should have to be prepared in this industry?
Being humble, patience, dedication, motivation, drive; you really have to be hungry for all this.
What should aspiring female models be careful of? What are some things that can be unforeseen?
A lot of girls I know aren’t okay with people copying them but it is something that will always happen especially due to the internet. Watching out for the creep photographers who are trying to see you naked or take advantage of you. People in general trying to take advantage of you. Get ready to deal with criticism because everyone likes to voice their opinion.
Take female escorts to photo shoots, make sure to contact one or two models who have previously worked with the photographer. Do research. Shoot every free chance you get. Make faces in the mirror to get different facial expressions down
What hobbies are you into outside of modeling? What do you do on weekends and on your time off?
I like going on hikes and scouting for cool abandoned areas to shoot in. I smoke a lot of weed to honestly. I work as a bikini barista in Fresno. I also rap so listening and writing music takes up some of my free time.
